On Saturday morning, Hal and I put in a few miles on the tandem before stopping in the city centre for breakfast. While we might have considered ourselves just two chaps out for spin and a feed, we do, as we did on the 8 Freight, tend to draw comments from both pedestrians and other road users.
Here's a selection:
Aw, that's so sweet!
Dad, look! Can we get one!
Wow, that's cool.
Nice. (Jazz fan, I guess)
There's a cycle path over there.
One of these comments came from an Audi A3 driver as he overtook us between speed bumps while approaching a roundabout on a road which had no cycle lane. Can you guess which one?
